New ABC Series Stars Adoptee
According to AngryAsianMan, and various other sources, actress Jamie Chung will star in the new ABC Series “Samurai Girl,” which is apparently based on a book called Samurai Girl: The Book of the Sword, by Carrie Asai.
Chung stars as “Heaven” growing up as a teenager and dealing with her rich adoptive parents. The plot twist is that she somehow learns the ways of the Samurai from her bloodline. Sounds a little Hollywood-Asian-ized to me, but it’s good to see adoptees getting some legitimacy on tv.
I haven’t seen a trailer yet, but sources say the series will be out by the end of the year on ABC. Here are some links about Jamie Chung, and the upcoming series.
